I thought I posted this days ago, but apparently it didn’t “take”. :::shrug:::
Derek, along with Mark, has often been the pro most likely to get creative in between seasons of DWTS – and often in unusual ways. This off season, he has a new and different kind of student: a robot. A company called Tosy asked Derek to help them choreograph mRobo, which is…well, you’ll have to see it for yourself. Derek went to Las Vegas to attend CES 2013 on Thursday to help present the work (to date) he’s done with mRobo and it appears he had a really good time doing it. You can see more pictures of the event at PureDerekHough.com.
Have we seen the last of Derek on DWTS? Seems like it, but you never know with this guy. He mentioned on twitter recently that he has some “incredible projects” he’s working on this year, but that they may take a while to achieve. Yes, vague as always – he’s also the most tight lipped of all the pros, both personally and professionally – but it does sort of imply that he won’t have time for DWTS. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
